Australia has a recognised shortage of GPs in rural, remote and outer metropolitan areas, which
impacts service delivery, especially to our rural communities. In order to address this we need to better understand when, how and why doctors are choosing their specialty and location of future practice.

This forum will focus on the results from the Medical Specialty Decision-Making (MSDM) research project, which explored these important questions. This project was managed by GPEx, funded by SA Health, and led by Professor Caroline Laurence (The University of Adelaide).

As a key stakeholder in this area, GPEx and the MSDM Project Steering Group invite you to join us for a presentation of key findings and a panel discussion regarding opportunities emerging from this research.

Opening address: Prof Kevin Forsyth
Presenter: Professor Caroline Laurence

MSDM Steering Group Panelists:

  • Mr Reece Johnson, Rural Support Service
  • Prof Lucie Walters, Director- Rural Clinical School, The University of Adelaide
  • Assoc Prof Alison Jones, Dean (Education), College of Medicine and Public Health, Flinders University
  • Dr Cristina Valero, Rural GP Graduate and Medical Educator, GPEx
  • Dr Bill Geyer, Rural GP and Supervisor Liaison Officer, GPEx
  • Ms Stephanie Clota, CEO, GPEx

Refreshments and canap├ęs will be provided from the team at Sprout Catering.

We look forward to discussing how we can work together to harness the opportunities presented in this research. We hope you are able to join us for this imperative conversation. If you are unable to attend this forum, but would like to nominate a proxy, please forward this email to your nominated proxy.
